Approximately 1 billion women are affected each year around the world by urogenital infections, including forms of vaginitis, not all of which are necessarily transmitted sexually. Bacterial vaginosis (again, not a sexually transmitted infection) alone affects 21 million women annually and is the most common vaginal condition affecting premenopausal women.  These afflictions, and others - often not detected - can affect quality of life without the woman even being aware. Your biome is important, it is like a fertile garden that needs careful maintenance. Consider this simple but accurate way to test your vaginal health!

The Blue Horizon Vaginal Microbiome Test looks at genetic data from an easily collected vaginal swab sample, tested at a fully accredited and cutting edge laboratory (the method used is qPCR, 16S rRNA amplicon sequencing). Our laboratory report includes considerable detail both in terms of the targets tested, and in the content of the report - which is far more comprehensive than other reports that we have encountered. For example - our laboratory includes detailed analysis of the 4 different species of Lactobacillus (which have been shown to be important in vaginal microbiome health and composition stability) whereas many reports will include all species under one headline. Similarly - Candida species (which cause thrush) are often grouped under one heading,  but there are in fact 4 known species - each is identified in our test.

So, very importantly, our test looks at the whole biome - no fewer than 25 species of bacteria and yeast may be identified - and it is a sensitive enough test to identify all relevant species, rather than grouping them together and losing relevant detail. Not all Biome tests are the same! These are important facts to keep in mind when choosing your Vaginal Biome test - both time and money will be saved in the long run if a specific organism, and a solution, can be identified.

    Chris Gomez

    Utterly patient, kind and helpful, kit arrived next day, as did my results. 5 stars well-deserved.

    Dell Finniam

    Great service and product. The turn around is brilliant (mostly - there was a glitch during the early part of the Covid pandemic, but that seems to be resolved now). Tests are recognised by the medical profession so I am able to use the results to get the treatment I need without further tests.

    Alexis Faulkner

    I had various questions which they answered via email/webchat and the timing of getting a kit, sending it back and getting the results was good.
